Afternoon Drawing

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours drawing with my friend Ciana Pullen--she drew me and I drew her:

It was wonderful to have enough time with the sitter. Figure drawing has accustomed me to trying to get everything down in 20 or 30 minutes, so I accept all kinds of errors in a mad rush to the feet. In this drawing, though I had time to get proportions and angles right, I still hurried into it and then spent too much time making corrections that a little care in the beginning would have prevented.
